2012 Red Dress Fashion Show

In 2012, The Heart Truth marked a decade of commitment to women's heart health. During February's American Heart Month, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) reaffirmed its commitment to increasing awareness about heart disease among women and helping women take steps to reduce their own personal risk of developing heart disease. One of the campaign's signature American Heart Month activities, the Red Dress Collection Fashion Show, serves as a red alert to women that heart disease doesn't care what you wear—it's the #1 killer of women. With the generous support of celebrities and the fashion community, the Red Dress took center stage on the runway again this February as the national symbol of women and heart disease awareness.
